In celebration of Dia de San Isidro Labrador (Saint Isidore's feast day), join chef Minerva Orduño Rincón for this special video workshop centered around cooking a unique regional dish of Sonora, Pozole de Trigo. While many think of hominy when we hear pozole, this Sonoran variation has instead a base of wheat berries, an important crop with an agricultural legacy stretching back to the 17th century arrival of Jesuit blackrobes. Coinciding with the winter wheat harvest, in communities like San Ignacio de Caborica, it is a tradition on May 15th to honor the patron saint of agriculturalist (and of the Spanish capital of Madrid) Isidro, by cooking a big pot of the delicious melange of freshly harvested wheat berries, vegetables and meat to be shared with neighbors and friends. Border Community Alliance invites you to learn this new dish while also gaining some insight on the rich cultural heritage of our shared binational region by Minerva.
